IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM TIB.
As many of you know, the TIB Alliance has been a member of the Eagle Alliance (EA) for some time now. While we have truly enjoyed our association with the EA, and I personally have enjoyed my contact with the other members of EA, we in TIB feel it is time to move on.
As of this turn, Turn 76, TIB Alliance is no longer a member of the Eagle Alliance. While we still consider Eagle a friend and ally, TIB should no longer be considered part of the EA, nor should it be assumed that we support or condemn the same actions, parties, or other alliances as EA.
We look forward to continued strong and friendly relations with the members of EA, as well as other alliances and groups. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Greetings Olympians, I am Omir the Giant, admiral of the Syr-Antin fleet. I am considering starting a ferry service for new players or old alike. It will be based in the Greyfell area and will sail to the northern islands and coastal crawls to nearby cities. I need to find out if anyone is interested in this and what sort of destinations they would need me to service. I will not carry troops that intend invasion etc as I live in the area and wouldn't appreciate mercenery captains dropping aggressors on my doorstep. Anyway, if you are interested or want more info, please email me at Pozzie@hotmail.com. I am also interested in partners for this venture if it is successful. If you have a captain in the area that is sitting at sea fishing and wants something a little more challenging, mail me and we can work something out. Imagine being a part of the biggest shipping company in Olympia.

The Story of The Syr-Antin
The Syr-Antin are a race originating from the Cro-Antin, natives of a land far away. Due to the constant state of war in their homeland the Cro-Antin Elders select a champion to sail for new lands and establish a homeland so the Kings Heirs can be safe. Lee The Brave was selected to sail to Olympia along with 3 orbs, each holding the spirit of a race represented in the Grand Council. To this end he summoned Omir the Giant, from the Giant courts along the coast. Seth The Elf came from the elven courts of the forests and Glormane The Dwarf from the deep courts of the dwarves. During their early travels they recruited local heroes to the cause. Koran Strongarm from the barbarian tribes of the nearby mountains joined them as did the mysterious Al-Hasha The Wanderer from the desert that the Syr-Antin settled in. Once the King heard how successful Lee had been he sent his advisor, Zarashand the Sage, thereby setting the scene for his son to take control. Now the Syr-Antin wait, with baited breath, for the arrival of King Artor the first, King of the Syr-Antin and Heir to King Priam of Cro-Antin. Now the Syr-Antin have their own King, new lands, and good friends. May peace and prosperity bless you all. We live to serve.

Why is it that the church of egraal is so fond of sodomy? What strange urges drives them to rape chubby altar boys? Is it because sodomy is the main tenet of egraal? If so, pederast saeter is definitely the right "man" to lead this revolting faith...

****LotC Tours announcements****
A few months ago we provided an all-in vacation for Mr. Son of Norc, Captain Spalding and Sargeant Zim from Camaris, accompanied by their pet dog Pluto. The tour included a few weeks at Orianna Beach, a short stop in Orianna, and later on an extendend visit to our beautiful metroplis Toppe, with the possibility of a long city-trip to sunny castle Dragonfalls.
Although these gentlemen were well informed of the rules and regulations on our lovely continent of Provinia, they are currently in violation of three of them:
1) May we remind you that ALL pets from continents other than Provinia, have to be quarantained for at least six weeks before they are allowed on the continent. Your hound has not undergone such a quarantaine period.
2) Of course our wonderful parcs are ideal for walking your dog, but PLEASE stay on the designated paths. Walking on the gras is STRICTLY forbidden. You can't miss the walking paths, they're clearly marked by barriers.
3) Littering is STRICTLY forbidden. During the last few months, our cleaning department has worked overtime to clean up your mess (we blame the dog), not to mention all the bloodstains you're leaving on the floor of our garrisons.
We trust that you will remedy the situation soon. If not, we must warn you that fines are 5000 gold and higher. If you continue your misbehaviour you leave us no choice but to put you on the nearest boat home.
LotC Tours hopes you further enjoy your stay,
If you thought the article by the famed warlord Captain Arrr was insightful wait until you see what Ming the Merciless has to say! Coming to a web site near you soon.

I am the Wraith Back from a little vacation, I didn t have time to do my usual round of hautings the last few weeks. But, my spectral spies are still combing Hades and all of the graveyards out there and I ve found some interesting tidbits.
It looks like Eagle is back to their old tricks. Once a Fox, always a Fox bird boys? When will you learn that join or die doesn t win friends?
Looks like TIB is taking the gloves off and will actually be taking part in this Eagle invasion. My ghostly brothers have been recruited by the hundreds from TIB graveyards and are apparently marching south to hit the poor Ussun Bandits from the north. Has the peace-hawk become a war-hawk?
The award for best diplomacy may go to the tatooed boy, but he ll get no ribbons for warfare. First he kills his own men on the high seas, now he loses his top mage. Come on Brucie, put some soliders with your mages! or at least SFW! 10 NP has got to be a tough loss to swallow.
Paging PLATO, paging mr PLATO. Your army is parked with it s light s on. Please either move your army into combat or leave the continent. Other alliances need that loading zone.
Is this the turns the lights go out? Of course I mean the Northern Lights. Apparently the candy bars are tireing of waiting for the attack and are mounting their own offensive. Once this one hits (2 turns?) ole Wraithy s prediction of world war will seem to have come true.

If you're a young LotC Mafia gangster out on your first date, I bet it's real embarrassing if PLATO tries to kill you.
Rumour has it that another Olympia Alliance has posted a web page at http://www.geocities.com/area51/stargate/9565
Has anyone seen the United Terrorist.I'm gonna kill every last one of 'em
